I like the storage lighting - functional and looks cool. I pondered getting docking lights with our boat, but didn't do it. We'll see if they get added down the road...

I bought led lights to replace the docking light halogen bulbs. Those factory 50 watt bulbs draw a ton of power. I also changed the bow light to led because a normal bulb gets to hot.I changed the stern light and glove box light and courtesy lights over to led. At first I didn't notice I had a light under the helm.I put a white one under there but may switch it to a blue one. I tried switching the cluster over to led but half the gauges quit working. The ground side didn't like it. The engine compartment already has normal bulbs in it so that was s easy switch.the storage light was easy $4 led strip and tapped into the glove box light and the helm light. I really liked how those turned out.Now you can see what hiding in there.

Did you put the docking lights in yourself? That's something that's on my list... right after the prop... and the baby :lol:

Also I'm looking for a custom decal for the name - any good sites for that?

Let me know what you want to get made I'll get it done for you. Just give me measurements of where your going to put it. No I didn't put the lights in yet. Honestly I really don't want to cut holes in it yet. I will some day. I don't boat at night so it's just a look thing.

Agreed about the lights, they look sharp. I'd probably turn them on twice a summer... but I'd look super slick when I did!
